Watch the video tutorial below to learn the step-by-step instructions.



  • four white pool noodles
  • red duct tape
  • white duct tape
  • three brooms
  • hot glue
  • plush elves (to decorate the ladder)


Step 1

Connect two pool noodles using white duct tape, then start with the red duct tape on one end at an angle and spin it around, making a candy stripe. Do this to the whole length of the two pool noodles, then repeat the same process on the remaining noodles. These will be the two outside legs of the ladder. Next, grab the brooms and remove the bristles and the hooks on the opposite end. Cut each broom handle into three equal pieces, giving you a total of nine.

Step 2

Grab the red duct tape again and give each broom piece candy stripes. (Cut the tape in half to be more proportionate.) Next, starting at one end, measure and mark 8″ in both noodles. Apply hot glue to the ends of one broom pole, then punctured it in at the marking, making your first rung. Measure 11″ next, then place the second rung. Repeat this measurement for the remaining length of the ladder using eight broom pieces. After this, place some plush elves to decorate the ladder.
